Char highlight: convert LO character background to MSO highlighting
DOC export has a good approximating algorithm for that
so use it everywhere.
In RTF case use the default color table which is added
also by MSO Word. With that highlight colors are also added to

At some point in repo 5.1 ( not available for linux ) it changed from black and white to strong colours...
Adding bibisectRequest keyword...
Bibisected to the following range using repo /bibisect-win32-5.1, which is a single commit there.
From that range the following commit is the likely culprit:

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

All of it was going to change to a hard colour(w:highlight) on save and reload. So somewhat irrelevant.
Since 7.0, the default is to export as shading (w:shd) instead of highlight. So most people won't see this any more - only those who find the setting Options - Load/Save - Microsoft Office - Character Highlighting save as Highlighting.
So a toss-up between WORKSFORME (since 7.0 changed the default) or NOTABUG (since forever).
